Malabrigo is one of those yarns I have heard about forever but failed to really "get" the excitement. I got some in a swap and although I haven't knit with it yet I do have some opinions already.
Some Mal worsted in Ravelry Red:
It was near impossible to take this picture. I tried natural light, no flash as well as automatic with flash. Nothing really worked but you'll have the idea and at least I can get it in my stash on Ravelry.
I also got a skein of Silky Merino (DK weight) in the color Topaz:
This is a beautiful gold color. Both of these yarns are so, so soft and squishy. I get the appeal of it right away. I do wonder about the pilling factor - especially with the worsted. It's a single ply which (in my experience) tends to pill. Anyone out there reading have any experience with Malabrigo? The colors are gorgeous and like I said, the squish factor is high!
I also recently bought two skeins of Mosaic Moon Rainbow with Black on superwash wool:
In baking news, I tried a recipe from Cookie Madness for sour cream scones. I love scones. Not too sweet. Some crunch on the outside with a tender inside. Yum!
